Great Escape is a VS 4 mini-game in Sonic Shuffle. It is randomly played when a player lands on an Event Space.
This mini-game features a dimly-lit maze on top of a building with everyone in the center. All players must try to get to one of the corners within 30 seconds to escape in a rocket. No one can leave the maze the same way as another player, so if an exit is taken, all other players must head for a different exit. While navigating the maze, players should jump over holes or else they will start at the beginning, though some of these holes are covered up by gratings. There are light switches that will light the building briefly as well as other items, such as paralyzing opponents for a few seconds or adding 5 seconds to the clock.
The first player to make it to an escape rocket wins 20 Rings, followed by 10 for second and 5 for third. Players who fail to escape in time will be caught in the blast by Eggman's time bomb, losing 10 Rings each.
||Proceed to the exit in the dim light, before Eggman's bomb blows up the building.
